Varieties and origins
Jumbo - with shell
Jumbo pistachios have a particularly round and plump shape and must be 18/20 to 24/26 in size, which means that 18 to 20 pistachios with shell, or 24 to 26 without, weigh one ounce (28.3 g). The less pistachios make up an ounce, the larger they are.
Long - with shell
Long pistachios have a typical elongated shape and must be 18/20 to 24/26 in size, which means that 18 to 20 pistachios with shell, or 24 to 26 without, weigh one ounce (28.3 g). The less pistachios make up an ounce, the larger they are.
Round - with shell
Round pistachios are small and round in shape, and must have a size between 26/28 and 32/34. This means that 26 to 28 pistachios with shell, or 32 to 34 without shell, weigh one ounce (28.3 g). The more pistachios you need to make up an ounce, the smaller they are.
Iran is the world's largest producer of pistachios, and the ones of the Iranian variety are beige in colour and come in many shapes and sizes. They are characterized by their bright red skin. In terms of taste, many people prefer the Iranian kind over pistachios from other countries, as they have a particularly intense, aromatic taste.
Characterized by a particularly light-coloured shell, as they are cleaned twice in a water bath during the production process, American pistachios are, in terms of taste, very similar to the Iranian pistachios, from which they originally come.
Harder to open than other pistachio varieties, Turkish pistachio nuts are elongated in shape and darker than American or Iranian pistachios. They are known for their intense aroma, and whether they taste better than the Iranian pistachios is a matter of personal taste!
Pistachios with skin are nuts which have been freed from their shell, but maintain their reddish skin intact.
Peeled – grade S
In order to obtain their peculiar bright green colour, these pistachios are harvested slightly unripe, opened mechanically, and freed of their skin in a hot water bath.
Peeled – grade A
Also harvested unripe, opened mechanically, and peel with boiling water, these pistachios have a beautiful dark green colour and are a bit lighter than Grade S ones. KoRo's extra green pistachios have precisely this coloration.
Peeled – grade B
These pistachios are also harvested when still a bit unripe, mechanically opened, and freed from their skin with boiling water. They have a lighter green colour and are therefore designated as Grade B.
In 2017, 1.1 million tons of pistachios were harvested worldwide and over 50% (574,987) of global production came from Iran. In 2017, the United States produced about a quarter (272,291) of the worldwide harvest, and ranks second among the largest producers of pistachios. China, Turkey, Syria, Greece and Spain follow.

What is the KoRo price chart?In this chart, you can see the price per base unit (mainly 100g). In addition, you will learn the reason for a price reduction or increase by clicking on the information circles.
Why is the price fluctuating?Most annual product crops have an impact on the relationship between supply and demand in the market. In the event of a bad harvest, we must also pay a higher price for raw materials. Due to the strong impact of external factors such as wind, weather, climate and natural events on the harvest, we are refusing long-term cross-harvest contracts with our producers.
Why are we communicating price changes at KoRo?Open communication is very important to us and therefore part of our vision. For this reason, we would like to keep you informed of the evolution of our prices. Thus, the KoRo price chart provides a transparent overview of the evolution of the products prices over time.

Pistachio butter 6 x 500 g - a look behind the scenes
It didn't turn out that way
In our shop you get only the tastiest products. That's why we have tested extensively before - and found the best pistachio puree for you. Unfortunately, there were also a few losers.
When the pistachios were still young
The pistachios for our creamy puree come from Iran. There they dream for a full 2 years on their tree before being allowed to become our KoRo pistachio puree. Since we are nice, we fulfill their wish.
Others would dress up
Not so our pistachios - they are freed from their shells instead. This happens in a factory in Italy. There, they tumble along this conveyor belt and do what pistachios are good at: Look delicious.
Not a nut?
It could also pass for a nut - but the pistachio is a drupe. Just like an almond, the delicious fruit is therefore still wrapped in a skin. Although it is also edible, it would interfere with our puree - which is why the pistachio skin is shaken off in this machine.
You can taste this picture
It makes you want to stick your head in - but we restrain ourselves and fill the delicious pistachio puree into our 500 g jars instead.
Nothing, except pistachios
We also had to look twice: Our pistachio puree really only consists of peeled and roasted pistachios. But because we have contained ourselves, there is still enough for your next order.
